If you suffer from cataracts or other vision problems, your lifestyle and comfort can be affected. Clouded and blurry vision can interfere with your ability to read, drive, and enjoy your day-to-day activities and hobbies. At Beach Eye Medical Group in Orange County, we understand the value of clear vision. We also understand that finding the right eye surgeon for corrective care can be a challenge. When choosing an eye doctor, you should consider several factors, including the surgeon’s training and qualifications, experience and track record, adherence safety standards, and ability to communicate.
First and foremost, you should look for a surgeon that has extensive training in cataract surgery and is board certified and in good standing. Moreover, the surgeon should be knowledgeable of the latest advances in the field. With today’s rapid technological breakthroughs, it is not enough to have fulfilled the basic medical educational requirements; ongoing training, specialization, and active involvement in the field should be a priority for the surgeon and part of his or her professional profile. You should feel confident in your surgeon’s credentials.
Our Beach Eye cataract specialist is licensed in California, board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and committed to bringing cutting-edge techniques to our thriving Orange County practice.
How long has the surgeon been practicing? What is his or her track record with patients? Has he or she been involved in any lawsuits for negligence or malpractice? These are some questions that you should feel comfortable asking your potential surgeon.
A qualified surgeon achieves consistent results in line with clinical standards and should be able to provide evidence of outcomes. If you have any concerns or doubts, ask if he or she can provide any patient testimonials. (One caveat: patient testimonials are extraordinarily valuable, but be wary of any recommendations that seem like a paid endorsement.) At Beach Eye, we have a litigation-free record and will gladly provide you with patient testimonials at any of our Newport Beach offices.
How do the facilities look? Does the surgeon use state-of-the-art techniques and equipment? When you visit our Orange County offices, you will see clean and modern facilities. At Beach Eye, we have invested in the newest technologies at our Huntington Beach practice and rigorously follow accepted protocols and procedures to ensure patient safety. Our goal is to maximize patient comfort and minimize the risk of complications.
Above all, you should feel at ease with your surgeon. A surgeon’s ability to properly communicate the benefits and risks of eye surgery, as well as the specifics of the procedure and what to expect during and after, should not be underestimated. A good surgeon should be able to guide you through the entire process. Our cataract surgeon takes a highly personalized approach and puts the patient first.
We offer a full range of intraocular lens (IOLs) options, including traditional monofocal IOLs, toric IOLs, multifocal IOLs, and accommodating IOLs at our Huntington Beach practice.
With any corrective eye surgery, it is important to have realistic expectations of outcome. At Beach Eye, we value patient trust and will provide accurate and honest information at every juncture. As leaders in the field, our medical team understands the every pair of eyes is unique and will evaluate and treat your eyes with the top quality care you deserve.
We serve patients in Huntington Beach as well as other Orange County communities, including Newport Beach, Irvine, Fountain Valley, Westminster, Costa Mesa, and Tustin.
